There is wind where the rose was,
Cold rain where sweet grass was,
And clouds like sheep
Stream o'er the steep
Grey skies where the lark was.

Nought warm where your hand was,
Nought gold where your hair was,
But phantom, forlorn,
Beneath the thorn,
Your ghost where your face was.

Cold wind where your voice was,
Tears, tears where my heart was,
And ever with me,
Child, ever with me,
Silence where hope was.

    I want to learn a few English songs and show off them to my friends in karaoke. What songs do you recommend for that? I want to pick some popular and up-tempo songs so that they can enjoy. And songs with easy lyrics to sing are best.

    I'm practicing this song.

    I was thinking of joining a choir that sings rock songs but their rehearsal day is on a day I can't make! I have a very poor voise though I can sing in tune. Lynne has a lovely voice!

    Agreed. But you sound like her, so does it mean that you have a lovely voice too?

    @Shiny03: I think @Lynne and @amatsuscribbler have both lovely voices. :)
    I like their british accents as well. ;)

    Aww thanks @kindgnice, but have you heard me sing?
  • LynneLynne Your Teacher HomePosts: 9,585 mod
    @Yellowtail - Some members have run a few karaoke sessions in the past.

    Yellow submarine by the Beatles is a good karaoke song, I love Rock and Roll and Happy are worth a go too.

    I haven't heard you singing @Lynne. How I wish I can duet with you some time. ;)
  • LynneLynne Your Teacher HomePosts: 9,585 mod
    @Zom and I sang Fairytale of New York together once. It wasn't much like the original though.

    @Lynne
    Thank you for your recommendation! I love the Beatles of course. And Yellow Submarine seems really easy to sing. It should be fun if we sing it with my friends.
  • kindgnicekindgnice LEO Motivator!!! Posts: 7,669 mod
    That's cool! Was that recorded in YouTube or other social media? Would like to hear the playback. :) @Lynne

    I love the Eleanor Rigby song of Beatles. @Yellowtail @Lynne
  • YellowtailYellowtail Posts: 737 ✭✭✭✭
    @kindgnice
    That's one of my most favorite Beatles songs! Especially I love the sound of strings. It makes me feel like I stand on the edge of a cliff.
    By the way, the movie is really cool too!
  • kindgnicekindgnice LEO Motivator!!! Posts: 7,669 mod
    Yes buddy. I agree to you. I love singin' with it whenever my Dad plays his soundtracks. :) @Yellowtail

    @kindgnice - I'm afraid only the people in the karaoke session that day could enjoy this interpretation of Fairytale of New York.
    It befits a man to be merry and glad
    Until the day of his death.

    @Zom You're here. :smiley:
  • kindgnicekindgnice LEO Motivator!!! Posts: 7,669 mod
    Don't worry @Zom. I'm very appreciative when it comes to music. I'd be glad to hear your duet with @Lynne. :)
  • kindgnicekindgnice LEO Motivator!!! Posts: 7,669 mod
    I love singing this song. It helps my voice improve my R&B version of me... :)

    singing with the songs you play through any device is very good for your breathing and motivation i do sing often i have a huge and wide variety collection of music, i just run them in WINAMP software with LYRICS plugin and there you go. :p
